Rosy Royledge Shelf Trim


There can't be a prettier sight than opening a cupboard and seeing shelves trimmed with roses which is why discovering lengths of vintage Royledge paper edging ($8.99: auction ends March 8th 2010) on Ebay is always such a pleasure, with the rosy length above being a particularly scrumptious example...


Royledge was a company producing the most scrumptious of shelf trim, lining and a collection of rather fabulous "Roillies", aka paper doillies, most pertinently from a vintage housekeeping aesthetic in the 1940's and 1950's. While shelf trim and lining from other companies can often be found while treasure hunting it is the site of  box of Royledge trim that most delights my heart, because it is so often scattered in the kind of pretty florals we all adore in color schemes that haven't dated...

There is just something so puttery about lining and edging shelves in happy little patterns that I can't resist, though of course exactly the same effect can be achieved with lengths of vintage lace or ruffly trim...

Its great to know a brand name...will help with Ebay searches once I do have a farmhouse kitchen to outfit. (We're shopping!)

Well deja vu! My paternal grandmother had shelf paper just like that. The texture on it is wonderful, not to mention the pattern.

Puttery Post!
